Ashley and Jack are at home, arguing about what happened in court. Ashley tells Jack she'll breathe a lot easier when it's all over, and goes off to get ready.
Jack is in the study, getting some coffee when a voice says to him, "Pass the cream please, Jack!" It's his father! John! He tells his dad that cream is bad for his cholesterol, and thinks aloud that he is hallucinating! The two tell each other they miss one another, and John explains how he is at peace. John also asks Jack to treat his wife with some respect.
Ashley walks in at that moment and Jack tells her what transpired! She's supportive and asks Jack if there is something on his conscious that he needs to work out with their dad. She wonders if that is why he saw their dad.
When Jack is alone, he is flabbergasted once again by his father. John returns, telling Jack to be honest in court today, and tell everyone how he coerced John to write that new will! Jack argues his point that Gloria is out to get him and would do anything to do it. John tells him "Apparently, so would you." Jack yells that he's doing this because she took him away from all of them. John asks him to, "Make me proud you're my son!" and Ashley comes in and they leave.
At Michael's place, Gloria and the crew ready for court. Michael comforts his mother, telling her she has nothing to worry about. Lauren and Kevin are ready to go. Gloria is very nervous and keeps changing earrings.
Back at the ranch, Sharon and Noah have breakfast. Sharon asks about the picnic. He tells her it went well and that he knows about having a little sister. He's happy about the news. He also tells his mom that he likes Phyllis. He tells her that his dad and Phyllis are getting married!
Just then, Nick comes to the door to take Noah swimming. Sharon reams him out for not telling her about coming to get Noah, and about telling him about marrying Phyllis before he let her know first. Sharon thinks that Nick gets his cake and gets to eat it too!

Back at the Baldwin's place, Kevin tires to cheer Gloria but she wants to be left alone. She's devastated, and gets comfort from Michael.

He boosts her morale, telling her he is proud of her for her strength, and is there for her.
